Paint Creek Trail

Owned and managed by the Paint Creek Trailways Commission (PCTC), the Paint Creek Trail is an 8.9 mile linear park, located in northeast Oakland County. It was the first Rail-to-Trail in the State of Michigan, as it was converted to a trail from the former Penn Central Railroad. Open to the public since 1983, the Paint Creek Trail receives over 100,000 visitors annually.

The Paint Creek Trail spans 1.5 miles through Rochester Hills and features picnic tables and a limestone fine surface. The trail is perfect for biking, hiking, wildlife viewing, fishing (DNR regulations apply), and cross-country skiing on ungroomed trails. On this trail, pets must be on a 6-foot leash and under immediate control, you may not carry or consume alcoholic beverages or ride motorized vehicles.
